Bel Air - October is Dyslexia Awareness Month, so on Tuesday the International Dyslexia Association brought Harvey Hubbell, a filmmaker with dyslexia, to The Highlands School in Harford County. The filmmaker working on a project called Deslecksia: The Movie.
“School's like this, a lot is happening but this only reaches a small number of people we have to get a larger number of people,” said Hubbell.
Schools like this are needed, but more needs to be done.
“Visual, kinesthetic, auditory, tactile teaching methods needs to happen in public schools. It would benefit everyone not just children with dyslexia,” said John Bruns from the International Dyslexia Association.
In the meantime, as Harvey says, the students or anyone for that matter just need to find their gift.
“The coolest part of dyslexia is that even though you have trouble, that you get better and better at it and you get really happy that you do so much better with your work,” said 5th grader Harry Heaps.
